Four-year-old slaps mum with $2,600 bill after ordering 918 SpongeBob ice popsicles
One little lad got on his mum's Amazon and went wild. We all love a bit of SpongeBob
Noah Bryant, a four-year-old from Brooklyn, New York managed to get access to his mum's Amazon account and ordered 51 crates of SpongeBob ice popsicles - 918 ice pops in total. Noah, you are my absolute hero.
Like all of us (don't bother pretending), Noah is a big fan of SpongeBob Squarepants and after spotting an opportunity, he ordered the tasty treats to be delivered to his aunt’s home.
Much to his mother, Jennifer's dismay, the shipment cost a whopping $2,618.85, which equates to approximately £1,872 or so worth of ice lollies.
Looking to help her ex-schoolmate and friend, Katie Schloss set up a GoFundMe page, as well as sharing the "adorable story to Instagram:
Understandably, Schloss said that Bryant - a current student at the NYU Silver School of Social Work - had no idea her son had purchased the pricey popsicle package and simply didn’t know how she was “going to be able to pay this off, in addition to student loans and all of her family’s other expenses."
Seeing her friend in a significant spot of bother, Schloss set up the GoFundMe in hopes that some generous folk would find the story funny, as well as find in their hearts to give a little to a mum who already has plenty on her plate.
Incredibly, despite the goal 'only' being the $2,619 needed to pay off the bill, the fundraiser has now reached over $15,000. Noah's mum, Ms Bryant, wrote on the GoFundMe page: "Thank you SO much for your mind-blowing generosity and support. We cannot thank you enough. Truly".
